Our Chefs

Meet Chrissie Overstreet


Chrissie came to Rooster's South Park with formal training from Johnson & Wales as well as years of experience. Her interest in culinary began with her Gaga, who taught her how to make walnut crescents during the holiday season. She's a sucker for desserts with an affinity for peach cobble, Chef Noble's famous coconut cake and anything chocolate.

We're thrilled to have had Chrissie onboard as the Sous Chef for 3 years. Learn more about her below!
